    This is not a problem but rather an opportunity. Let's get Indy on the band wagon and do the same. What do you reckon Dean. Great idea really and if it helps stops crime I am all for it. Good business idea and he cannot stop us from doing the same. Lets get on board.
    Cheers

    I accidently said the word "online" to a mower shopowner today when buying trimmer line from him. I saw the look of fear in his eyes, which turned to anger and fury as he charged me double price for the line and then told me that my honda is crap, when I asked if he stocked any honda spares! Funny cos it seems to cut the grass ok. Might be the last bit of money that guy gets from me.

    The body corporate resident who only see's you onsite for 10 minutes, so assumes that is all the time you have spent there, yet you have being there much longer. just not their end of the complex. Than decides to write a list of complaints to the managers. the joys of new residents, and than to find out that they have a friend in the business who they are trying to get the job for.

    Victoria is pumping new officers through the academy in Glen Waverly its choc a block with recruits .


    Its a bit like Jims advertising for customers but cant service 90000 a year his words not mine .
    Franchiseors is what he wants and hell turn them over because thats the way you make the dollars .Buying and selling rounds his words not mine .

    if you cant service what you allready have why spend money on advertising .

    BINGO

    Yeah, what is it with new tenants ?
    I've been mowing this particular block of flats for about 5 years now and I could just about do it with my eyes closed. The new tenant came out and asked me "Are you going to just leave those grass clippings there on the driveway ?" when I hadn't even finished yet.

    GO BACK INSIDE !!!! and M.Y.O.F.B.

    I responded to the comments, ie we don't prune while the plants are flowering, etc, etc. Than straight away sent another email increasing the price

    Feral parents at kids sporting events. Get a grip people they're less that 10 years old and yet are behaving more like adults that you are!!

    Just because I am on the committee does NOT give you the right to scream abuse at me at this morning's game. I was trying to watch my daughters play and happy to discuss it privately with you later but that wasn't acceptable to you. The outgoing committee made the decision, not me and your kid won't cope going up a division, she's too young and doesn't yet have the skills to play against kids up to 3 years older. Do you want her to end up hating the sport?

    Take your rose coloured mummy glasses off and set an example for your kid!

    No way Budd Re: Things that make me grumpy

    Stupid raghead next door to a job I was doin the other day comes out and tells me this..."You not good job. You make dirt here" (pointing to her driveway.) I blow the rest of my excess clippings onto her footpath, pack up and drive off. My initial intention, as it always is, was to blow it off when I am done...oh well

    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    Catching up after a period of migraines last week. Working weekend but Friday late a/noon reply to a small developer asking to quote 2 acres need doing over weekend. Yep ok will do it.
    Talk to him this morning and bust my ar** working all day today to make time for him tomorrow. Well well, it seems that these people coming to look at this property on Monday may well just see it overgrown as I saw it.
    When speaking to him this morning I asked him to send me an email confirming the job and prices discussed. Get home an no email!!
